What to say about this guitar. The tone is both mellow and loud. This is an excellent strummer or finger picker with a playing that’s slinky.
We restored this guitar in 2008 and she hasn’t moved and require no setting up, just a new set of strings when we traded her back in.. The sound board has been re-braced with scalloped bracings and the neck has been re-set and re-fretted. The post op work is flawless with no indication that the repairs were ever carried out. The “string through” bridge has been replaced with a “pin bridge” which we made in house. The dual pick up system was also made in house and sports a internal bug and a removable sound hole pick up controlled by two volume controls. Amplified she sounds amazing.

Isn’t she beautiful? We restored this baby from the ground up. Back off, new bracings, bridgeplate, refret, new binding and a whole lotta love. This guitar is a bell and the aged timber makes for a truly resonant little parlor guitar.

Sporting a solid Adirondack spruce top and solid birch back and sides. We have completely rebuilt this old girl from the ground up. New Scalloped bracings finish things off beautifully. The tone is brash, full and loud.
Whether finger picking or strumming you’ll be amazed….
inc case (a bargain…….)

Harmony Tenor Guitar
factory no. 25851118S5 C summer ‘39
Why didn’t other makers follow Harmony’s lead. Harmony’s are easy to date as there is stamp inside the guitar that says “S39” or “F38” (meaning fall of 1938, simple really…) This tenor is solid mahogany around and is fully refurbished and re fretted. A bright, chimey sound that belies it’s simple looks Oh yeah! … it has a pick up too

Ser 90090565 C. 1990. Our designation is EF340SC. S for “solid top” and C for cutaway (US model no’s differ). She has a lot of character and I would describe her as “beat but sweet”. Structurally solid and sports a re fret, that famous Takamine electronics, and silky playability

1973 Fender Telecaster Custom
ser. No. 373650
This guitar is all original (apart from a replaced 3 way selector switch) right down to the frets. The alder body is light (unlike the later American ash guitars).
The playability is smooth owing to the slick factory frets and the tone is as you would expect. We see very few pre ’75 telecasters so examples like this are highly collectable, although we’d love to see it gigging again….
We all have a little bit of Keith Richards that needs to come out so here’s your chance. Hope that happens I don’t really know what else to say, this tele’s doing the talking now
$4000.00 (inc original case)
